Excellent value, a hidden gem

I really enjoyed playing this course. Although a little off the beaten path for golfers within or on the outskirts of North Atlanta, I believe a longer trip to play this course is well warranted. The condition of the course were excellent tee to green. The only reason I didn't rate the condition with 5 stars was because the greens had been recently sanded a little - not enough to cause a major problem of any kind though.

I found the tee shots to be very reasonable, even of a shaky driver like myself, but there are certainly enough challenges to demand respect. In fact, the same could be said for the course in general.

Crystal Falls is definitely worth a try if you can find the time!

so close to Private Status

Overall the course is in good shape and well worth the drive. The only exception to the good rating is the fact that they charge for range balls which is very poor considering the private status of this club. I would think a club utilizes Sites like GolfNow not only to bring in additional sources of revenue but also to promote the club itself to potential members. Charging for Range balls is like getting an invitation to a party with a BYOB. Poor taste and image!

Great golf & a must play in the North Georgia mtns!

Played in a tournament at the falls and played a practice round the day prior. Both days were better than ideal conditions...This is a great course with a mix of holes. Some holes are open while some get a little tight. I really enjoyed the mix of par-3s as well with my favorite hole being the short 11th! Plenty of birdies available with the reachable par-5s but they are not easy by any means! Great practice area and clubhouse...Really can't wait to make another trip up here to play crystal falls!
